The Oakland Athletics are announcing a goodwill effort for the 2018 season called “Community Impact Wednesdays”. The organization will give baseball fans the opportunity to name their price for tickets in section 322 on the upper level of Oakland Coliseum. Bids must be greater than $1 per ticket and all proceeds will be donated to the Oakland A’s community fund. The promotion will run every Wednesday for the entire duration of the 2018 Major League Baseball season.

The Oakland Athletics regularly contribute nearly $2 million to the local community via it’s community fund. The community fund aims to promote local youth sports, improve the community economically and support education. Last week, the Baltimore Orioles announced that they would be providing two free tickets for children under 9 years old with the purchase of a regularly priced upper level ticket. The Orioles’ promotion will allow families to attend games at Camden Yards with more regularity and get younger fans interested in the game. Getting younger generations interested in Major League Baseball has become a priority for MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred.
